Default My turkey rug!

Hey y'all! I've been debating whether or not to post the pictures yet, because I haven't gotten the head yet, but I couldn't resist! I would like to thank Jason at JerseyJaysTaxidermy for helping me prepare the skin for mounting! Here are a few pictures from the rug! As you see in the third picture, I incorporated the turkey skull into the mount! I incorporated this fox skull into it as you can see in the fourth picture! I made it look muddy, using a pine brown colored putty, then sprayed it with a matte finish.

The last two pictures are of the artificial natural habitat I incorporated in! This is the artificial head I will be getting. It is a hanging dead pose, and will be placed on the blank board between the wings.
Hope y'all like like it!
